Hi Poppy,

What bit have you been using? What has your horse's reaction been to that bit?

Fleshy cheeks tell us that we will need to go to a fixed cheek piece, so that we can fit the bit on the snug side to ensure that it sits correction in the mouth, and doesn't just fit the lips.

A fat tongue is frequently sensitive to tongue pressure, but not always. The most important part of bitting is what pressure the horse is happy to accept. Your previous bits and his resistances will tell me where we need to move the pressure to.
